GTA V Keeps randomly crashing - Help

  • This is the error log:

    Prior to this the d3d11.dll file was causing the issue by looks of previous event logs.
    I went into Command Prompt and made it so the launcher would verify check all the files.
    Still crashing, only seemingly success is that the d3d11.dll doesn't seem to show up in the event log as being the issue anymore, alas no idea what the problem is now.

    This is just to get you started.

    That's a very common Windows error :/ . Could be a lot of things which doesn't really help.

    Have a look here http://www.errorlive.com/exception-code-0xc0000005 & follow ONLY steps 1, 2 & 3. (you could try No.6 perhaps, if you have a restore point before the problem started)

    Also other info to give you ideas here: https://support.rockstargames.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/203484157--Ticket-3544026-GTAVLauncher-0xc0000005-problem-solved-

    There are just too many things it could be to have a guess (bad RAM, conflicting program, corrupt system files, bad GTA V 'settings.xml', bad GTA V 'cfg.dat', malware, bad BIOS, Hyperthreading conflict etc etc)

    Saying that, try removing your settings.xml from:

    C:\Users\ *USERNAMEHERE* \Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V\settings.xml (<should be there, if not, find GTA V's 'settings.xml', move it & make GTA V create a new one)

    & see if the game loads. Make a backup of all files & create a restore point before messing with Windows. :thumbsup:

  • @Xiomn I had similar issues and was driving me crazy, I was convinced that the problem is with my PC.
    My config:
    CPU: 10980xe @ 4.7 allcore, 0 AVX offset, watercooled
    Motherboard: Asus ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore
    Mem: 128Gb PC3200
    Storage: 1Tb SSD
    Video: RTX 3090, watercooled
    Mods: Menyoo, NaturalVision, ENB, 1900 car pack, heapadjuster, packfile-limit-adjuster, and some more I can't remember

    First it seemed that the crashes were less frequent if I took back from the overclocking, so I ended up using my CPU at factory default settings. Still, it was impossible to start the game in 4K, I had to choose a lower resolution so that it would at least load. I ended up using it in 1080p, but even that crashed after a while.
    I found another causal connection between the number of cars/pedestrians and the crash frequency. So I reduced the traffic to the normal default level, with no add-on cars in the traffic. Still it kept crashing.
    I found all the forum threads that explain that I should install heaplimitadjuster and packfilelimit-adjuster as a solution, so I did that. Nothing changed.

    Then I found the answer under the packfilelimitadjuster mod, in the comments (this part is not even explained in the readme, instead there is a comment in the .ini file, that explains what needs to be done. Since me (and I assume many others) only read the readme, I could not see that there are more instructions to this mod. Basically, whatever gameconfig.xml you are using, you have to open the one that is installed inside the archive (using OpenIV, I guess I don't have to explain what it is if you are reading this already). Then you have to search for the element called <ArchiveCount></ArchiveCount> ( or <ArchiveCount ... />, there is only one so you'll see). Then take a note of the value that is associated to this element (e.g. 3874). Then go back to your PackfileLimitAdjuster.ini file, and make sure that the packfile_list_size is NOT LARGER than this ArchiveCount number. It can be equal. So just write:
    packfile_list_size = 3874
    or whatever your number is.

    This is it. After this fix GTA 5 is running rock solid, in 4K, with all the mods, 4x traffic on the roads, including imported vehicles, etc...
